Here's to a good game, should be fun. Wish I was there.
I don't believe that, you just poached J. Bell and I know how he did in pre-season, you guys got yourselves a good rb.

and they got him cheap.
If they work him into their schemes, he could bring a whole new dimension to their offense.
Probably too late this go round, but he'll do wonders for next season.
If they mess around and release him, he'll be back in NOLA before the waiver ink dries.

You think he's going to know the playbook well enough and work with the team enough in two weeks to really make a difference? He's there just for depth in case of injury and maybe for next season . . . don't get me wrong, I watched the kid play at Wayne State and am pleased as punch we signed him, but I can't imagine him seeing much action in our first playoff game in 12yrs . . . unless he's a fast learner . . . wouldn't that be ironic if he came in and ran for 100yds on you guys?

go Lions.

He will know enough of the playbook, he could hit a open hole. And yes, possibly do some damage, he can run can't he?

What is with the Bell love affair? The guy has been on 5 teams in 2 years and has 150 yards in his career. If he was any good we would've found a place for him or gotten something in return

He's a local boy and we don't have squat for a running back . . . everybody's hurt, we're just glad to be able to get a warm body on the roster at this point in the season . . .

go Lions.

I think at least every other game everyone and there mom has "had a bad feeling" for every game. I think we are a different and better team than the 2009 saints, and we have begun our stride. We are going to the Superbowl.

GVSU gets some talk on sports radio here in lansing but never Wayne State. I guess they can only kiss up to so many coaches.
